27 March 2024

Belle Vue PhotosOn 28th May 2024, Belle Vue Park celebrates its 150th anniversary of being opened as Lowestoft's first public park. 

As part of the celebrations, Lowestoft Town Council are asking members of the public to submit their photos of Belle Vue Park throughout the years.  These photos can be historical or current photos and show landmarks of the park, events or people enjoying the area.  We have already seen a wealth of photos shared on social media and hope to collate the submissions into a digital gallery with some being printed up and displayed within the park on the anniversary.

Photos should be submitted to admin@lowestofttowncouncil.gov.uk with the email headed “Belle Vue Park Anniversary” and include a brief description of the photo and, if applicable, any personal attachment to the photo.

We look forward to seeing your photos as we celebrate this historic park.

Please note that all photos received should include permission to be shared and only high quality photos will be printed up for the physical display.

Taking part in sport and recreational activities is important to everyone's health and wellbeing, and in order to encourage uptake and participation in sports and recreational activities, Lowestoft Town Council are looking at how it can invest in and improve the facilities on offer.  Lowestoft Town Council already manage a number of different sport facilities (from a putting green to basketball courts and tennis courts) across Lowestoft which are all free-to-use.

Each section of this survey covers a number of sites in Lowestoft (all owned by Lowestoft Town Council) which have some sports facilities in them already and asks how often you use the existing facilities and what new facilities you would like at each site.  You are welcome to fill in as much or as little of the survey as you like (there are options to skip sections if you wish).

The survey will be open until Friday 5th April.
